Kurilpa Beggars’ Banquet

TABLE BOOKINGS FOR 2019 ARE NOW CLOSED!!

Sorry...We have run out of space, and tables, and chairs but you can still register as a beggar!

Sunday 1 September 2019

Boundary Street (Between Vulture and Russell Street)

Join in with the Kurilpa community for dinner in the street after this year's Kurilpa Derby to share a meal with friends, neighbours, family, and new friends. The Beggars' Banquet has been running since 2015 and is an entirely volunteer-organised and run event. It is the ultimate community potluck and always excellent fun.

How it works:

Set up a dinner table with your neighbours or friends (complete with your most decorative dinner party accoutrements), bring a home-cooked dish, and leave some spare places at the table to welcome 'beggars' (new friends).
